    @bRooklynRocks: DH and I spent some time in Brooklyn Heights in the fall and really liked it! And you can definitely get more space for your money, altho it’s still expensive of course. If it were a shorter commute for Dh to get to work from there, I think we would seriously consider it. I love how home-y Brooklyn feels.

    Fiance and I currently live together in a 1 br/1ba apartment, with an office, hardwood floors, porch, and one garage parking spot in upstate NY.  Our rent is $575/mo total, plus gas/electric/cable.  It’s actually a great deal for our neighborhood.  We’re moving to a new city though and buying a house, so that will be more expensive, but so exciting.

    Way.Too. MUCH!  Well, the actual apartment is nice enought- semi-newly renovated, 950 square feet, laundry room, 2 bedroom, open plan- but the location is in a bad part of town so you can’t.walk.anywhere!  It stinks!  It is $850.

    There are one bedrooms here for $650 -that will be our goal in the fall- we just got trapped here when we moved here- found this place online :/

    The one good thing: onsite dog park.  The dog loves it.

    We’re in Ann Arbor, Michigan in a 3 small bedrooms/1 small bath ranch house (about 800 sq feet), fenced back yard, renting for $975/month.  We pay all utilities as well.  It’s not the nicest place ever, nor the nicest neighborhood, but Fiance doesn’t want to move out of A2 yet.  So it’s not too bad for the space & being in A2.

    ETA – doesn’t come with parking either. There’s a coin-op laundry in the basement.

    Before moving into a pretty little 3 bd house in the province of Qc with my Fiance I lived a 10 minute walk away from the Parliament Buildings in downtown Ottawa.  My whole condo was the size of my current living room and it cost me $1250.00 per month!  I currently pay $500.00 per month towards the mortgage. 

    That condo was sweeeeeeeeeeet for a single city girl though.  Modern. Unfinished ceilings, loft style with sliding barn doors, floor to ceiling windows, awesome gym, billards room and party room in building.

    Sigh.. can you tell i miss it a bit?

    With my Fiance gone with work, I am a little bit lonely in suburbia

    We pay $1795 for our 3 bedroom, 2 bath single family house in Northern Virginia. We have a very large fenced backyard, dishwasher, washer and dryer. Utilities are not included but we dont pay any pet fees/deposits so we did save some money. We live 2 miles from a metro and 8 miles to downtown DC.

    I pay $250 a month plus utilities for my share of the house. We have 6 people living here so it’s about $1500 for a 5bedroom townhouse.

    ETA: I’m also in semi-small city Canada, so factor that into it.

    We rent a 1600sf, 3bd, 2br, house on lake Okanagan in central British Columbia for $1,500 per month not including utilities. It’s beautiful! 🙂

    ETA: I seriously cannot wrap my head around the rent in NYC. I’m so shocked.

    $1450 for a 1 bedroom 1 bathroom (with 5 windows!)on the upper east side

    sounds expensive compared to other parts of the country but this is a real steal for manhattan (way cheaper than my last 2 $2300 and $2100 yikes! I got smarter, who really needs  a doorman I can open my own door and my washer is one block away)
